My wife has been coughing for the last more than two weeks, dry , have tested TB,Hiv all negative. She is not allergic and also have any other ailments.Her wt.remains static at 62 kgs. Ht. 5ft 5 inch age 44. Is it acid reflux? kindly advice .

FCCP (USA), MD - Pulmonary Medicine
Pulmonologist, Indore
Acid reflux can cause cough but will have additional symptoms of burning sensation in upper abdomen and chest. If this occurred after cold then it is post viral syndrome and needs inhaled medication. Other possibilities to be ruled out is atypical pneumonia, asthma, post nasal drip, any cardiac problem etc. Please visit chest specialist for proper diagnosis. Best wishes

I am 28 year old and persist cough and cold since last 10 days. Kindly, prescribe medicine.

There are several things you can do to prevent a cold—they are all easy and inexpensive and worth the effort. Wash your hands often-with soap and warm water.The germs stick to the soap and get washed down the drain. Always wash your hands after coughing or sneezing into your hands, blowing your nose, after touching someone who is sick, or when using public restrooms or telephones. Cover Your Mouth and Nose When You Sneeze or Cough- Clean your hands every time you cough or sneeze. Avoid Touching Your Eyes, Nose, or Mouth-Germs are often spread when a person touches a contaminated surface and then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth. Stay Home When You’re Sick-Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, don’t smoke, manage stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food so you can fend off viruses. In general you should: -Take healthy balanced diet...like boiled eggs.daily in breakfast .. -Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. -Routinely clean and disinfect common areas of your home. -get plenty of rest so your body can use its energy to fight the cold -staying at home will keep you from spreading germs -drink plenty of liquids like herbal tea or hot broth/vegetable/tomato soups. Avoid foods or drinks with caffeine which can keep you from getting enough sleep -Runny Nose and Sneezing- if you have post nasal drip, gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. Drink extra fluids. (avoid sugary and high calorie drinks) -Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation • Tablet Nasorest-P once/twice daily may reduce the amount of mucous. • Do steam inhalation once or twice daily Treatment:There is a gradual 1-3 day onset of symptoms. It often starts out as a sore throat, then a fever and coughing. As the cold progresses, the nasal mucus may thicken which is the last stage before the cold dries up. A cold usually lasts for a week or two. But, taking good care of yourself at home can relieve symptoms and help prevent complications if you are otherwise healthy. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn’t need medical treatment. Complications include bacterial infections of the ears, throat, sinuses or lungs which must be treated with antibiotics. Cough-Coughing is how your body gets rid of debris and mucus from the airways during a viral infection. Unless your cough is severe or is keeping you from resting at night, it is better not to treat it. A severe cough can be treated with a cough syp, but don’t try to completely stop the cough. There are two types of coughs. Productive and non-productive or dry cough. Non-productive, dry cough. A dry, hacking cough may develop near the end of a cold. Dry coughs that follow viral colds are often worse at night and can last up to several weeks. Take syrup Alex-D for a dry cough. Cough drops can sooth an irritated throat, but most don’t affect the cough. Productive cough. A productive cough is one that brings up mucus from the back of the throat or the lungs. Productive coughs should not be suppressed to the point they no longer bring up mucus. Use syrup Alex. Drink lots of water if you have a productive cough. Head and Body Aches- Take tablet dolo-650 mg for fever once or twice daily get xray chesy also done

I have post nasal drip and gerd. I have just recovered from a severe cough. Now I keep on getting black-greyish mucus after some time. I am a moderate smoker. Should I be worried? My chest xray showed few dots but my doctor said it was nothing to worry about.

Hello Ishan, first of all stop smoking due to which your respiratory system will regain its immunity back. To improve your respiratory immunity have a good quality chyawanprash daily morning. Have plain water steam inhalation for 2-5 minutes daily before going to sleep. Have home made ghee 2 teaspoons daily with Yashtimadhu churna 1 teaspoon after meals. This will take care of gerd also. Have fresh food always. Dont over eat. Avoid cold foods. All this will help.

If all these tests are normal, get TSH done to assess thyroid status. If that too is normal, then can be due to weight related or psychological.

My father has an asthma. What is the effect of using an asthma preventer for long term?
Asthma preventer has a very good effect when used for long term. Your father will be: 1) symtom free, 2) there will be minimal or no asthma attacks, 3) quality of life is improved, 4) there will be reduced chances of getting hospitalised for asthma attack, 5) there will not be any permanent changes in the lungs which occurs if asthma is not treated properly.

You may be suffering from chronic rhinosinusitis as your condition is 4-5 years old, it will be better to get a nasal examination done by a ent specialist with nasal endoscopy to look for any sinus blockage and he may also get a sinus imaging done with ct if required, you can start tab smarti-m once a day, syrup mucolite 5ml twice a day and steam inhalation twice a day for 5 days.

I will suggest you to get an xray chest done and also get your sputum checked for genexpert test and if you find any thing abnormal than only we should be going for tuberculosis treatment and just on the basis of mantoux test reports we should not start tuberculosis treatment.
